About

Hadrian’s Wall stretches 70 miles across the north of England from Cumbrian Roman coastal defences at Ravenglass to Wallsend on the east coast. Dating back as early as 112 AD, the route today encompasses archaeological sites, spectacular landscapes, rare wildlife, complete solitude and vibrant cities. They are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites’ Frontiers of the Roman Empire together with German-Raetian Limes in Germany.
